-on embrace of president obama for helping sandy-ravaged new jersey came days before the election and had no noticeable effect on the presidential race but some republicans think christie didn't have to be that -- >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down. >> a combo team from the say what categories, richard murdouch of indiana and todd aiken. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that god swended to happen. >> dreams to take control of the senate in 2012 had dwindled throughout the year but aiken and murdoch pretty much shut that door in a couple of sentences. plan to prevent employers from hiring undocumented workers. >> people who have come here illegally won't be able to find work and over time those people would tend to leave the country or self deport. >> self deportation by undocumented workers was not by itself responsible for romney's dismal showing among hispanics, but certainly greased the skids. for which romney would have liked to have had aa mulligan, there was this. >> 47% of the people who w
, is not who is popular and who is not, he's won his last election. that doesn't matter anymore. what obama does care about and should care about is his legacy. if you go over the cliff he may get a bump temporarily and the republicans will take a hit but his legacy will be his second term. and if he wrecks the economy, as he would, by not being able to remedy the consequences of going over the cliff, then he's going to have a failed second term and a failed history -- history will remember him as a failed president. now, what he probably thinks, if he can go over the cliff, the republicans will take a hit, he will have public opinion behind him and then he can undo the damage one issue at a time by getting a reduction by a return of the majority of the bush tax rates, standing unemployment, whatever else he wants to do he can get that one piece of legislation at a time so that he won't suffer the consequence of a second recession of 9% unemployment. so i think that's his calculation. but i do think that he's putting a lot in jeopardy. if we go over the cliff, it's going to be a very shaky
thou,000 a year. the bush tax cut will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about three million votes. he won the election. he campaigned on this issue. again, the speaker can't take yes for an answer. the president has presented to him something that would prevent us from going over the cliff. it was response to something that the speaker gave them himself but i guess with the dysfunctional republican caucus in the house, even the speaker can't tell what they are going to do because he backed off even his own proposal. the house, we hear so often, is controlled by the republicans. and we acknowledge that. i would be most happy to move forward on something that senator mcconnell said they wouldn't filibuster over here that he would support and that boehner would support if it were reasonable. but right now we haven't heard anything. i don't know and it's none of my business, i guess, although i am very curious, if the speaker and the majority leader, the republican leader over here are even talking. i mean, what's going on here? mr. president, you can't le
election. on november 6th president obama beat republican rival mitt romney to win a second term. what other stories topped the list and what do they tell us about the world we live in today. john fund is a columnist for "national review magazine" he joins us to weigh in on this. john, good to see you. merry christmas to you. >> thank you. kelly: we hope you're doing well. we know the top story was the election, it was a bitter fight to the end, president obama winning re-election. what does it tell us, though, about the campaign of mitt romney, and the mood of the country then, because we had so many other big stories affect the outcome of the election. >> well, this election, i think, was a very curious one, because president obama made some history. normal lee an incumbent with an economy that weak and no particular prospects of it getting better wouldn't have won re-election. but president obama was able to take advantage of i think dramatic stumbles on the part of mitt romney, the 47% line and various other things, absolutely. kelly: does it surprise you that mitt romney's people
is obama is as progressive a figure who has the chance of being elected in america. friedrich engels will not be the secretary of labor and mark will not be the secretary of the treasury. >> he is the more effective evil because he is able, being a democrat, to accomplish more of that right-wing agenda, and republican ever could. george bush tried to privatize social security. he cut his worst domestic defeat of his term in so doing, and the republican were reeling from that, even in 2009. it took barack obama to introduce a model for austerity. >> 29,000 public school teachers and support staff have gone on strike after union leaders failed to reach an agreement with the nation's third largest school district over education reforms sought by chicago mayor rahm emanuel. >> we will walk the picket lines, we will talk to parents, clergy, we will demand a fair contract today. we demand a fair contract now. >> the protests in yemen and egypt on the tuesday night's storming of the u.s. consulate in benghazi. u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three other staff members were killed in
there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> that's president obama delivering his victory speech on election night. in the end the race wasn't even close. maybe mitt romney didn't even have a chance. his fellow gop contenders feasted on one of their own during the primaries. is it the american way that if somebody gives you a smack on the nose, you eventually have to smack them back? isn't it time now for you to accept that this negativity has pounded you into a position where much as you would like to keep it positive, isn't it time you got the old gingrich fist out and give romney a good ol' smack? >> harry truman in his great reelection campaign that gallup quit taking polls in mid september went after duey and the crowd would yell out "give 'em hell, harry" and he would yell back, "no, i just give them the truth and it hurts like hell." i think governor romney has done so many things that are indefensible in a republican primary -- it would be okay in a democratic primary but in a republican primary it would be indefensible. all i have to do is tell the truth, i'm not going t
? >> i think you to open with the top story being president obama's reelection. it was a presidential election that was close. it was fascinating. it was really hard fought and i think it was very consequential. are there was a possibility that president obama was going go down as a jimmy carterresque figure, one kicke term kicked . he has four more years now. the possibility that the economy will turn around and he will be able to go down as a successful president. i also think and this is a big reason why time made him our person of the year, he had a very interesting diverse winning coalition. a lot of people say it was kind of the new face of america. a large minority nonwhite vote. young voter to a more liberal than older vote hers. i think you can see the changing face of america there. that would be the number one story. right behind and related to it is chief justice john roberts guiding the supreme court to a decision that upheld the healthcare law. finding a compromise solution where he said that the individual mandate might not be constitutional but that the law could be ju

they punts add problem from a year and a half ago. but an election happened. president obama has the first democrat in 75 years to win and said $250,000 was his bar. the elections have consequences. so that's a legitimate place to be. everybody that got elected to the house of representatives just got elected, too. and they have a no new tax pledge. you are at logger heads here. i think there is a sweet spot where nobody wants to be the person to raise the taxes that we just talked about and have a big bill come across your table in january. >> i think really the problem is spending. we've spending problem in our country. look at our debt. our debt is over $16 trillion. our government is spending way too much money. we need to cut back on spending, cut -- >> arthel: where? >> look at the entitlement programs, for example. there's a lot of waste, fraud, and abuse going on there. that is not even on the table. and so listen, we can cut our expenses in our country that is spleeningful and very important for us to do because right now, they're just kicking the can down the road and it's not go
.; presidential leadership. i hope that president obama now that he is elected will do as good a job in tackling tough issues as he did in getting reelected. there are 535 of us and we all have ideas, and in the senate, we probably have 40, 50, or 60 of us who say we are ready to raise revenues and control entitlements. we have said that. the republican leader has said in an editorial in "wall street journal" that he would be ready to raise revenue. if i had waited for the state legislature to come up with a road program, which would be on dirt roads. the president has to seize the moment to make a proposal about revenues, and he has to go across this country and say i will give you a very tough maze. you will not get your medicare bills paid if we did not deal with that now, and you're not going to like it, but i am here to tell you that we are going to have to do it if he were to do that, if all of us were st aying we are ready to work with you to solve the problem. he is the president, and just as reagan worked key deal with tip o'neill and bill clinton did on welfare reform and president eis

of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama -- almost like a parliamentary party -- was not rewarded. the taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded, calling the obama health care plan which was their own only a few years earlier socialism was not rewarded. that was not they have to begin to rethink themselves and, importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition. so i think that was an important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice to one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein, "it's even worse than it looks." this is booktv on c-span2. >> you've been watching booktv, 48 hours of book programming beginning saturday morning at 8 eastern through monday morning at 8 eastern. nonfiction books all weekend, every weekend right here on c-span2. >> so
at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about three million votes. he won the election. he campaigned on this issue. again, the speaker can't take yes for an answer. the president has presented him something that would prevent us from going over the cliff. it was in response to something the speaker gave to the president himself, but again, i guess with the dysfunctional republican caucus in the house, even the speaker can't tell what they are going to do because he backed off even his own proposal. mr. president, the house we hear so often is controlled by the republicans, and we acknowledge that. i would be most happy to move forward on something that senator mcconnell said they wouldn't filibuster over here that he would support and that boehner would support if it were reasonable, but right now they are -- we haven't heard anything. i don't know -- and it's none of my business, i guess, although i am very curious -- if the speaker and the majority leader -- the republican leader over here are even talking. i mean, what's going on here? mr. president, you can't legis
's fairly unusual to have so many so quickly right after another election ends. remember dough dealt with some of this after 2008 when obama was going to the senate a lot to appoint people to his cabinet, dealing with a lot of fallout then as well. sometimes it happens, when president switching terms but it's very rare to have this much political activity so soon after november 2012. >> ifill: thank you both very much. tomorrow we'll talk with christina about shifting political landscape in illinois. south carolina again and new jersey. >> brown: next, the story of a catholic priest's journey as a doctor ministering through 25 years of haiti's recent history. fred de sam lazaro has the latest in our "agents for change" series. a version of this report aired on the pbs program, "religion and ethics newsweekly." >> brown: for 25 years, father rick, defined and redefined through crisis and even catastrophe. he came to this impoverished caribbean nation in 1987 after a few years in mexico and honduras to expand the mission of his catholic religious order. >> we came in fact to set up

dealt it with it in the last election. and the differences have always been that president obama has maintained that tax cuts should be allowed to expire for people making more than $250,000. mitt romney called for extending all the tax cuts fully. and making other changes to the tax code. but, you know, i mean, he wouldn't be in office right now anyway. so i think we would still be here talking about what to do come january 1. host: all right. david in maine on our line for independents. go ahead, david. caller: yes. i've been around for a few years and i've seen this coming since 1970. when revenue -- when wages did not go up, revenue doesn't come into the government. and when we constantly spend and promote money, shipment overseas, shipment job overseas, and we blame people like me on social security, you know we're elite on systems. excuse my language. host: david, we're going to leave it there. joseph rosenberg. guest: it is true right now that tax collections are at near historic low but that largely remains a result of the still weak economy. and so when the economy went into
moments of the election best described as history-making politics. a supreme court decision upholding the constitutionality of obama care and if that doesn't strike you as political, can consider what would have happened on the campaign trail if the high court had struck down the president's signature first-term achievement. >> at a certain point i've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> reporter: the first president to endorse same-sex marriage was a daily double moment. good politics aimed at an activist wing of his party's base and most certainly history. and finally, the number one political moment of the year is easy during elections. >> cnn projects that bar
